See How Gum Reshaping Works
We have several options for you when we need to reshape your gums. Let’s say you have some recession and your gum tissue is receding up the side of your root and either you don’t like the look of it or it’s sensitive when you brush it or you’re starting to make a notch in the side of that root. We have options for you where we refer you to a specialist and that specialist can bring down that gum tissue.
Sometimes there’s situations where we’re trying to correct your smile and correct what you see when you’re talking in the mirror to see what’s visible. Sometimes we have some teeth on this side that are shorter than the teeth on this side or vice versa or your gums just aren’t a symmetric shape. When we’re doing that cosmetic evaluation we can talk about moving your gum tissues up to the correct, you know, the ideal dimensions, because we have an educational background in that. We can reset the gum tissues for you to give you that aesthetic look that you’re looking for.
